OUR STORY

Flibbers were invented by long-time friends Jennifer Mazur and Terri Murray.  At play dates and over family dinners, they’d dream up product ideas and business plans. When Terri brought up the idea for what would eventually become the Flibber, they decided to finally go for it. They handmade their first prototypes in Jennifer’s kitchen using plastic granules, the microwave, and assorted jewelers tools.  Shortly thereafter, they employed the services of a plastics engineering company, PTI Engineered Plastics, based in Michigan, to assist them in further developing the Flibber clog charm shoelace adapter clip.

It was very important to Terri, whose husband is in the Marine Corps and an Iraq war veteran, to manufacture the Flibbers clog charm shoelace adapters in the United States.  And with both the Murray and Mazur families living in Southeastern Michigan, in an area whose manufacturing-based economy has suffered in recent years, it was also important to try to find a manufacturer based in Michigan.  Fortunately, PTI Engineered Plastics was able to accommodate the manufacturing of the Flibbers at their Clinton Township facility.

The name Flibber was derived from the origins of the Jibbitz product name.  In interviews, the inventor of Jibbitz revealed that her husband often referred to her as a Flibbertigibbet, so they thought Jibbitz would be a cute take-off on that name.   Terri and Jennifer decided to call their charm adapter clip a "Flibber," and would like to encourage people to Flibber their Jibbitz®.  They have trademarked the tagline “Charm your laces!”
